    Did some googling for you: Cheap, but potentially less quality and manual focus (but last one holds for all non-native m43 lenses)... Oh, all mirror tele zoom are typically weight-wise relatively light, but brokeh typical (depending on taste simply bad).

    From the company:
    Opteka - Lenses for Digital / Film SLR

    Some shots / opinions:
    500-1000 mm opteka lense - Canon Digital Photography Forums
    Opteka lenses .... any good? - Steve's Digicams Forums

    Competition (besides the more exensive non-mirror options)
    Minolta 500 Mirror Auto Focus f8 Lens
    Rubinar 500mm f5.6

    What is your application? Hand-hold, fast moving objects?

    PS: Guess your post as well as my reply should be located in non-native iso native-lenses
